Is a Honeymoon Required for AOS?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got married early this year but we couldnt go for a honeymoon due to budget issues and also we couldnt get time off as both of us are full time students.

I know the IO has asked many couples if they went on a honeymoon during the interview along with honeymoon pictures. Will a lack of a honeymoon create a problem during AOS?

We are planning to go on a honeymoon later this year after we save enough money and get some free time from our busy schedules.

Nobody requires you to take a honeymoon. Does it provide evidence? yes. But if you have other evidence, you should be fine unless there are other problems.

Gosh. I hope they aren't this picky. I suppose we had an honeymoon because we had a "destination wedding" but no one was there but us, we didn't wear wedding clothes, and worst of all or maybe in our favor, we don't even have pictures of the event to prove any of the above. I hope they are able to decide based on the sum of many different factors.

I feel like our proof makes it obvious that we have a bona fide marriage, but we have almost none of the usual proof. If they have to follow a checklist, we are screwed.

Don't worry so much. They do not have a checklist that says no honeymoon, no AOS. You would have heard about it if that was the case. If you have plenty of other proof and everything else is ok, there won't be a problem.

We joke that we had our honeymoon in England before we came home and got married (we put the cart before the horse after eight months of being apart). :lol:

I hope you enjoy your honeymoon when you can afford to have it, Nartaki!

You will be fine. I had my interview today and she didn't once ask about a honeymoon. As long as you have other proof of a bona-fide marriage (lots of wedding photos, proof that you live together, etc etc etc) you will be just fine :)

We have been married for 1 year and a half and we haven't had a honeymoon yet. Our wedding ceremony was done at the court house and we didn't even bring wedding pictures at the interview and we got approved. The IO didn't ask anything about the wedding or honeymoon.

It would be pretty silly for anyone to imply that a honey moon is a proof of marriage. What if the people don't like to travel? What if they are afraid of traveling? What if they'd rather celebrate their union by buying a 60" tv for their bedroom instead of getting drunk for a week somewhere?

We haven't had a honey moon yet and probably never will. Personally, I'd rather keep the cash and pay off my house.
